We already knew a new Adidas adiZero Crazy Light was in the works after a new take on this super featherweight caught our eye during March Madness. What we didn’t know, was what was truly in store for its release and what else Adidas could do to refine this already remarkable silhouette. But today Adidas finally unveiled the adiZero Crazy Light 2, which now takes over the label as the lightest basketball shoe ever at a lean 9.5 ounces. Adidas had the shoe’s designer, Robbie Fuller, on hand to help introduce us to their latest on-court creation, which he boats is 10% lighter than its nearest competitor even with more cushioning and stability built-in across its frame. Much likes its predecessor, the Crazy Light 2 uses Sprintframe and Sprintweb tech to provide total foot support, even up through the ankle giving both the games biggest and fastest players the performance they need. Adidas will begin the release initially with 5 colorway choices, including the Electricity and Black/Red versions after the jump, on May 24. Make sure to stay tuned as more looks become available.
Release Date: May 24, 2012 (Thursday)
